@Sniff: We are sorry if you are not happy with MaxiVista.
However, claiming of being "ripped off" goes a little bit too far, as we do not advertise touch pad functionality at all.
We are sorry if you got this impression and would be eager to learn, which of our marketing material gaves you the impression that we would offer what you have thought. We will immediately update the materials in question.
Can you help?
We thought, it would be clear what MaxiVista has to offer in the video demo.
You seem to compare MaxiVista to Air Display but we never said, that both applications would be identical. They are OSX, we are Windows. A completely different thing.
The advertised purpose of MaxiVista is use to your iPad as an extended screen screen with a very high performance and we believe that we excel in this department. We invented this functionality in 2003 and gathered a lot of experience in display network transmission over the years.
MaxiVista includes sophisticated display data compression algorithms with a high grade of customizability and an interactive performance optimizer wizard that automatically adapts to your individual network environment.
While the iPad is positioned on a stand next to the Windows PC monitor, we believe, that there is little use for the iPad's touch pad, as you can easily use the Windows PC mouse to control elements on the iPad monitor. Of course, there are applications for touch pad support, that would make sense and we consider to add such function to a future MaxiVista version. We just prefer to do the main feature right first, and add additional features at a later point.

P.S.: By the way, your sole contribution to this forum at this time are 2 sequential postings to rant about our software in harsh words. Criticism in general is appreciated and we are happy to get user feedback. We are sorry that we could not meet your expectations and hope for your additional feedback to allow us to improve our offerings. I only hope, that I am no victim of a competitor's sock puppet. No offense intended and I apologize, if I am wrong but your posting is somehow suspicious for me in this regard. Time will tell.
